How to Determine When it’s Time to Replace Pillows and How to Choose the Right One How to Shop for a Pillow – Tips from Serta Choosing the right pillow is just as important to your quality of sleep as choosing the right mattress. Here are some helpful tips to help you navigate through the many pillow options available today, so that you can select the pillow that’s right for you. Know Your Sleep Position Your sleep position is key when selecting a new pillow. While there is no universal solution based on sleep position, many have told us that firmer pillows are good for back sleepers, while softer pillows are preferred for side sleepers. Serta has a variety of pillows to choose from, so you can find the right level of comfort and support no matter how you sleep. Thickness Matters While some people love to elevate their head and neck on a thick pillow, or two pillows on top of one another, others prefer a flatter pillow that keeps their head closer to the mattress. The thickness of your pillow impacts your comfort, so think about your preference here and select your new pillow accordingly.

In most situations, if you are a side sleeper you may need a higher loft pillow to keep your neck aligned. Stomach sleepers usually pick a lower loft pillow in order to keep their spine straight. If you are a back sleeper, you are more up in the air and other health issues may impact your sleep. Invest In Your Comfort Your new pillow will impact your quality of sleep each and every night. So, you should invest in a quality pillow that will provide comfort and support over time. Remember, an uncomfortable pillow can have a negative impact on your sleep quality, while the right pillow can only enhance your comfort and support while you sleep.
